What? Yes, yes I am still talking about this deal on milk boxes, because according to my handy-dandy report from Amazon, you people bought a lot of milk boxes. So I want to share my experience with all my fellow organic milk lovers.
I, too, ordered a couple of cases of milk boxes. And yesterday they arrived, and I remember thinking to myself, “Self,” I thought, “it’s a very good thing that these don’t require refrigeration! Why, it is over 100 degrees out here!” And then I took the box inside and opened it up and what was the first thing I saw on the box of milk cartons?
DO NOT STORE IN TEMPERATURES ABOVE 80 F
Hmmm, thought I.
I called Horizon‘s consumer hotline (the makers of the milk) to explain that I live on the surface of the sun and was wondering if my newly delivered milk would still be okay. The recommended that I discard the milk. Then they offered to send me some coupons.
I called Amazon and here’s the interesting part—they asked me if I wanted a refund or a replacement. “Well,” I said, “I would like a replacement, except it’s still going to be really hot here for a while. Can you ship it with some sort of cold pack or something?” I never did get a straight answer on that one, but the customer service guy assured me that they would “take care of it.”
I’m not sure what that means. But okay.
If you ordered the milk and you live somewhere really hot, PLEASE call Amazon to discuss your options. I don’t want anyone sending their kids to school with little boxes of organic botulism, you know.
